  1. The development of the E -technology started 2002 as a private initiative of KMW to cover the expected threat of PG's fired from RPG-7. The design covered turret and chassis with add-on armour modules adapted to Leopard 2. This technology was proved by German Army and sold by KMW to the Canadian Army for their Leopard 2 A4M CAN. A few vehicles were sent in 2010 to Afghanistan and performed pretty well. This technology can also be attached to Leopard 2 A7V as the attachment points have been foreseen at this MBT.
  2. @SH_MM could you please tell where this photo has been coming from? The third from left is showing the DM13 APDS 105 mm x 617, am I right?
  3. Now industry as an ARGE (KMW, Nexter, Rheinmetall) signed the contract with BAAINBw today, see https://www.bmvg.de/en/news/contract-concluded-future-decisive-ground-combat-system-258470
  4. ... and why are both hatches closed? This photo is definitely a fake and may be a good promotion for Russian internal purposes. Why should this prototype be sent to Syria in urban terrain? IMO the risk to fail or be knocked out would be pretty to high and a huge disgrace.
  5. Do you think that this is reality or a fake in best photoshop quality? BTW pretty nice front girl! Can't believe she would have been in Syria more that she is posing in a Moscow film studio.5
  6. Maybe you are right but at some time he will betray himself...
  7. This in the simulation I performed for this round. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FtyBUqT3BjGE8drXA It is a pity that I stopped it too early!
  8. You are right, the guys being engineers with Leopard 2 first development at DEG (Deutsche Entwicklungsgesellschaft) are too old to type in forums or are even dead. But some guys which worked with the development of the improved Leopard 2 A5 armour are old (more than 60) but still agile in some protection areas.
  9. In my opinion @SH_MM was never a KMW employee because he is a Deisenroth and Rheinmetall fan and he believes that KMW has no protection development knowledge. For me he is an old fool telling old stories with little actual background. Guess he is a pensioned BWB or BMVg clerk, more than 70 years old and playing the "protection knowledge" supervisor for this community. Sorry for this rigorous statement!
  10. Question: do you know the meaning of the purple and red rings?
  11. Do you know where this culvert attack occured?
